Paradice in the Costa Rica mountains

For 6 days we are the guests of Senior Luis Solis, who lives close to San Vito, a town in the southern part of Costa Rica.
Senior Solis is a passionate man, who lives his dream. He is an organic farmer. Step by step he is improving the outcome of his mission.
In order to be a successful farmer, as he points out, he needs to be a clever biologist, chemist, economist, psychologist and much more.
Senior Solis loves his profession. Every day, he not only takes care of his farm, but he is also constantly experimenting and discovering new things, which could be beneficial for his business
We are learning a lot from Senior Solis. He is demonstrating us that the use of microorganisms is essential if one wants to run an organic farm. He shows us in detail how he produces microorganisms and fruitful organic soil. We are helping him a little bit during the process.
Senior Solis also showed us how he is producing organic cheese.
Every day we see lots of new beginnings. Not only the fruits of Senior Solis’ work, but also baby dogs and a baby bird.
Senior Solis also invented a new nick-name for Marek. He calls him ‘Max’ or ‘Max-Organico’.
We enjoy our stay with Senior Solis and his friends a lot. We can not ask for more. Thank you Senior Solis!
